Miracle
Special documentary about the passion and determination of Korean national athletes who continued their pursuit of Olympic medals against all odds

Athletes from all over the world will compete for 98 medals at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi in seven events, such as skiing, biathlon, speed skating, bobsleigh, curling, ice hockey and luge. South Korea will be represented by 71 athletes - the most ever - who will compete in 13 events. They are expected to win medals in biathlon, luge, snowboarding and ski jumping. This program is about the painstaking efforts of Korean national athletes to win Olympic medals despite the low recognition of their sports in Korea.

Part 1: Snow Dream

South Korean athletes will vie for Olympic medals in snowboarding, biathlon, luge and cross-country skiing. They prepared hard to the Olympics by training in Korea and abroad despite the low recognition of their sports. They faced numerous hurdles while training, such as a lack of training facilities and equipment, but they managed to survive and improve their skills on par with the global standard as winter sports began to draw public attention after Korea won the bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics. Now that they can train in decent conditions, they are determined to win medals in Sochi. Snowboarder Lee Kwang-ki was the world's first to successfully perform the double-cork technique, becoming a step closer to an Olympic medal, while the luge team is focusing on improving its start techniques, which have impressed even foreign athletes. The athletes are also increasing their physical strength to overcome their physical shortcomings compared to western athletes.

Part 2: Curlers' Miracle

Curling tools used to be in short supply in Korea, prompting curlers to pick up brushes that had been thrown away by foreign athletes after international competitions. Curlers were often mistaken for maintenance workers when people saw them carrying brooms. The future of Korean curling was bleak. At one point, all the curling athletes quit the sport and went to their hometowns to make a living. But when the South Korean women-curlers won a gold medal at the 2013 Pacific-Asia Curling Championship, there was no doubt that these women deserved better treatment at home. Few people in Korea know about curling, and there are only two curling rinks in the country. These women put everything they had at stake to show the world what they can. They are the ones who put Korean curling on the world map despite the lack of training facilities and financial support. They refused to give up and nothing in the world could break their enthusiasm.
